French resistance fighter Maurice Dubois arrives at Stalag 13 to inform Hogan that Hitler has plans for the defense of Paris in case the Allies arrive, which entails the total destruction of the city by blowing up every building in the city. He also tells them that General Hammerschlag has the plans as well as where all the explosives are hidden. However, Hammerschlag only trusts one person, a so-called mystic named Kumasa who is really an ex patriot Amercan named Carol Dukes, who went to high school with Kinch. Kinch is then asked to go to Paris to try to persuade her to help the allies, despite her ambivalent feeling about the U.S. due to all the prejudice she experienced in her homeland. Can Kinch and Hogan convince her to help them out or will she sell them out to the Germans? Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Did You Know?


Although Kumasa/Carol Dukes refers to Kinch as "Ivan Kinchloe" and that is considered a revealing mistake as Kinch had been identified previously as "James Kinchloe," by coincidence there was an actual test pilot named Iven Carl "Kinch" Kincheloe, Jr. Kincheloe was a Korean War veteran and test pilot who was killed in 1958, and for whom an award honoring excellence in test flying is named.

When General Hammerschlag and Kumasa are sitting side by side with the plans between them each of them has both hands on the table. In the very next reverse shot both of their inside hands are at their sides and they only have the outside hands on the table. See more »

Never could get into this silly story
16 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this silly episode, Hogan and Kinchloe will hitch a ride to Paris in order to find out where some TNT is kept that is going to be used to blow up Paris. The plans of where the TNT is kept, is in the hands of General Hammerschlag and there lies the problem.

It just so happens that a woman singer that Kinchloe went to high school with is a favorite of the General. So they get her to lead him into some funky séance where Hogan can talk with the dead. With the General interested, this may be where the information could be obtained.

For about the fourth straight episode, the story was far-fetched and not very entertaining. And with funny lines few and far between it just did not lead to a interesting show. Never got into the story.
